Run multiple instance of LB on same PC

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to run multiple instance of LB on same PC on the same hdd, I have a very large library (15,000) with most of the bells and whistles and it crawls when starting up now. I was thinking about trying to split it up into 2, is this possible?

Windows 10
32GB ram
8TB HDD with 32GB Optane
I8086k @5 Ghz

I have tried most of tweaking tips I can find here, but really not any improvement,

yes you can run as many instances as you want from a PC just not at the same time.

I am doing this too.  As far as the system itself to load there already is a front end launcher for this, it is called the Windows desktop.   I have a LB instance for each system with only the resources for that system in the folder. 

It saves a step (no need to load LB then pick a system from a list,  it just goes right into it) plus it loads MUCH faster.

What I was wondering is if there is anything I can delete from each instance to save space?  What folders are essential?  Can I for example delete DOSbox if I am only going to load Genesis in that instance or will this freak LB out?

Any folders LB creates if you delete them it will just recreate them the next time you launch the program so removing any of them would be a waste of time.
